Although Minnesota Duluth sat idle last weekend, the Bulldogs still earned 44 of 50 first-place votes to stay the top-ranked team in this week’s USCHO.com Division I Men’s Poll.
St. Cloud State remained No. 2 after sweeping Colorado College and the Huskies garnered four first-place votes.
After sweeping Minnesota, Minnesota State moves to No. 3 this week (up from No. 4 a week ago) and took home the other two first-place votes.
Providence falls one spot to No. 4 and Denver jumps three notches to No. 5 this week.
No new teams entered the top-20 rankings this week, though Arizona State received 85 voting points, just one shy of No. 20 Wisconsin’s 86 voting points.
The USCHO.com Poll consists of 50 voters, including coaches and beat writers and sports professionals from across the country.
